Website having a background slideshow

Im trying to make a website that Im building have a background image slideshow. I had a friend help me while I was vising in another state so I have a little bit of a jump start. An issue that im also having is my images pixels are really high and they are way too big when I test the site. I edited them in Photoshop, not sure if that is the culprit, and if so how do I fix this?  Thanks in advance!

Like in a high definition so they files are too heavy in size?
If that is so you'll need to change the image scale, as it's a little tricky to,
some considerations need to be observed.
with photoshop please take a look at this guide

Decide how large you'd like your image to appear on the screen.
Typical websites are roughly 800 pixels wide, but different display settings and sizes can have a large impact on your images' appearances.
